Crunchy Bread Custard

Crunchy buttery toasted bread dunked in a creamy white custard with a bit of praline is a treat from kids to adults while breaking fast! This is the simplest way of making a dessert with different textures and flavors! I hope you all will love it! Here the praline is optional but it takes the dessert to the next level!

My family loves it, especially Kashif as he always prefers such creamy dessert while breaking fast! If you are new to this dessert give it a shot! This is an oldie dessert at our place! I don’t know if everyone remembers this, hehe! Anyways if you are searching ideas for a dessert or sweet, this will be an option!

Here the cream is a simple vanilla custard thickened with cornflour and milk and then the bread is toasted in butter and for that extra bite some cashew praline that gives the dessert a lift!
